The only way to prevent a hamburger from galloping out of the dining room to relive its glory days as a cow is to keep it on an acre of taste buds surrounded by a fence of molars and incisors. Give your cuisine pastoral retirement with today's Groupon: for $9, you get two Cowboy burgers (up to an $18 total value) at Candy. Candy is open Tuesday through Saturday.
Each bacon-bedecked Cowboy burger (a $9 value, $7 value during happy hours) ensnares renegade herds of cheddar cheese, barbecue sauce, and chipotle sauce in the crispy loop of an onion-ring lasso. Saddle the western fare with your choice of a side of fries, salad, or tempura green beans at Candy’s chic eatery—its plush seating and regal curtains sweetened with caramel and scarlet-apple accents. Pint-size patrons (welcome until 10 p.m.) can tumble through cyber space's digital jungle gym via the booths' touch-screen computers with Internet access. After 10 p.m. on weekends, late-night imbibers 26 and up surge the dance floor, abandoning half-consumed cocktails and expired absentee ballots on glossy wooden tables. On Wednesdays, karaoke and live acoustic stylings fill the air with floating quarter notes.
